* In ''Manga/{{Naruto}}'', this happens to Kakashi. He changes from a by-the-book and cold-hearted (if loyal) ChildSoldier who'd leave a friend to die in a heartbeat if he thought it'd be better for the village, into a man who is known for never leaving anyone behind, no matter the costs.

** DiscussedTrope when Roy's moral compass is assessed after his death to decide which afterlife he should go to. Though he'd identified himself as LawfulGood through the story up to that point, the assessing angel pointed out his more questionable decisions, such as hiring [[TokenEvilTeammate Belkar]], and suggested that his mixed bag of motivations and methods would make him fit better as NeutralGood. In the end, [[spoiler:he's still found LawfulGood]].
** [[TokenEvilTeammate Belkar]] sort of had one - while still ChaoticEvil, his tactics shift from StupidEvil to PragmaticVillainy as a result of meeting Lord Shojo (a ChaoticGood {{Chessmaster}}) and gaining an appreciation for his style. As the story goes on, Belkar may or may not be shifting towards ChaoticNeutral as a result of BecomingTheMask.
** Vaarsuvius has had at least two adjustments, though exactly when they occurred is up for debate. Apparently, Vaarsuvius's actual alignment is TrueNeutral: [[AmbiguousGender s/he]] wants to save the world, but cares more about his/her personal goals and does what s/he needs to do to accomplish them.

* Justified by MindRape in TheDCU: The villain Dr. Light was extensively brainwashed by Zatanna. She attempted to bring out his good side, but was ultimately only capable of turning him into a HarmlessVillain. After ''Identity Crisis'', the brainwashing unstuck and he reverted to his old nasty self.

* In LegendOfTheSeeker, Cara has a morality adjustment, makes a HeelFaceTurn, and then has another MoralityAdjustment. She becomes an Anti-Vilain (a kind of NobleDemon) to save her friends, and then, after a Heel Face Turn, she becomes, first an [[AntiHero Anti-Hero]] (type [[GoodisNotNice 3]] bordering [[IDidWhatIHadToDo the next type]]), and then a just, compassive and determined heroine with great strength of will (and shades of [[KnightinSourArmour Anti-Hero type 2]]).
